Susan Posnick ColourEssential Lipstick in LA

A perfectly Pink lipstick that I have recently been introduced to is this Susan Posnick ColourEssential Lipstick in the shade LA*. As a new addition to the range for Summer, LA sits amongst five other beautiful new shades and is the pretty Pink of the group.

On the lips, I find LA looks a lot more how I expected it to from the description, than it does in the bullet. Before trying it, I didn't think it would give the the pale, flirty Pink shade that it promises to, as it appears quite dark and almost marbled, but once applied onto the lips it's a truly lovely shade that carries both Gold and Silver through it, creating a lovely sheen. I'm not usually a fan of sheer lipsticks or those that carry any shimmer, but I find this looks really pretty on the lips and carries a nice amount of pigment.

Formulated with Olive Oil as well as rehydrating antioxidants and Vitamins A and E, the formula of the lipstick feels super moisturising on the lips and stays put, looking fresh for a really long time. The shade supposedly adapts to different lip colours, and I'm pretty pleased with how looks on me. I tend to build up the colour as much as possible, creating as much opacity as possible, but even though it is pretty sheer and out of my usual comfort zone, I'm really pleased.

These compact and magnetised Susan Posnick ColourEssential Lipsticks cost £18.50 and are available to buy online in fifteen shades, including the new Summer Corals, Nudes, Reds and Berrys. 

What do you think of this lipstick? Do you like sheer baby Pink shades?

  2. So gorgeous! It looked amazing on its own and even better on the lips.

  3. I think it's gorgeous but I'd never buy it because the colour is a little too light :) Great post!

  4. Bloody love this blog! :) great review. ..... will follow everyone back xo

  5. It looks so different, I love how it's a coral colour in the bullet and then on your lips a pastel frosted pink. I don't think this particular lipstick appeals to me as much as No7 Gay Geranium, that was so beautiful <3 xxx

  6. You always introduce me to new brands!

  7. This lipstick looks so different in tube! On lips it looks more nude and light :)

  8. Gosh I'd never have thought it would be that colour on the lips when it's such a dark bullet! I like the colour on you but I think for me I would prefer the colour the bullet appears to be. Seems like a nice formula though!
